The W212 E-Class has been one of the most cars in 2009 and besides one of the best looking cars in the it also offers an exceptional experience. The new Mercedes E class has built right from the and is more than different its previous version. It is evident Mercedes has spent a lot of time and to bring out one of the best cars in the We were fortunate to be among the few to drive the new Mercedes E-Class and we to no bounds.

Exteriors – A Mercedes is an catching machine and it does not go The E Class is no different and is a step up in compared to its predecessor. The car looks masculine and exudes status. The 3D front grill has been a V shape to add to the appeal. The previously headlamps have been a progressive slant and appear to be gemstones carved out with

Like the headlamps the bumper into the body with perfection, giving the impression the design has been cast a single mould. The bonnet the Merc Logo and is designed sharp lines which into the body, not only it a classic look but aiding in the of the car as well. The lines which run the sides reflect light in a way that the body appears to be than it is. The rear houses lamps which look good too.

Interiors – Once inside the E Class, the interiors are captivating and a classic feel. The steering has a lot of controls on it like audio, display and telephone controls. are provided behind the steering for shifting. Other standard like auto headlamps, auto door locking at headlamp washer, sunroof are features.

Its worthy to note all the controls are easily accessible the driving position. Considering the E Class has been designed to run on big which occupy a lot of bonnet the interiors are pretty spacious and leg is comfortable.

The E class offers adjustable seats with 4 way lumbar support for the driver and passenger as well as memory for the seats, exterior mirrors and column. The car also comes automatically dimming internal and mirrors which is quite a but the left ORVM is disappointing. It to show a highly magnified which leads to a larger spot area. This is seen is most Mercedes, it is a cost cutting measure or it is something we haven’t been to comprehend.

Though the front seats are comfortable, the rear seats to just lack that. We call them uncomfortable but could have been Legroom is adequate and overall is good.

The Audio system is and is controlled from buttons on the wheel as well as a dial on the console.

The Air conditioning System is impressive too. The Mercedes E has individual climate control for the driver and the front passenger, is unique and adds a sense of without compromising on the automatic control. The rear seats are provided with vents on the B on either doors and a centrally vent from where can be controlled as per the requirement of the occupants. The system, as Mercedes calls it, has 10 electric motors in total, job it is to control the cold and warm air in the mixing zones as well as the air which means that every outlet can be precisely as required.

There are lights abound in the new Two lights inside the central view mirror and two lights it. Two lights for the rear passengers can be controlled by the driver.

Built — Superb is not the word, we fall short on words to the built of this mean We tried our best to hear the squeak or the tiniest rattle any part of the car but the Mercedes E350 did not us a chance to complain.

On the Move – by a robust V6 petrol engine, the all new is impressive in its performance. This 3.5 V6 engine churns an output of with a torque of 355 Nm. Slotting the car in D the car moves very smoothly. Its fun to use the paddle shifting and the sweet of the engine sends the adrenaline making us push the car to the limit, the sound is breathtaking and one just not want to lift off the accelerator.

is light and responsive and varies to speed. As the speed increases the system increases the volume, Cruise Control is really once the speed is set, the car at the same speed till you the brakes, once you leave the the car accelerates to the set speed. But we don’t see feature of much use in India.

Ride, Handling and Braking – The E350 rides as if its flying at low The “adaptive shock absorbers” adapt to the current driving by reducing the damping forces driving normally, enhancing the comfort. The ride quality is way than its previous version. The car is sharp around corners, the Stability Program kicks in there is any loss of traction. is a button to turn off the ESP but thats there for show, even if the ESP is off, it automatically turns on, a feature apparently. Even trying to push it beyond the the E350 rode as if its riding on AWESOME.

Braking is decent and not the in the segment. The 245/45 R17 tyres do a good job, but with so power on your hands, braking would certainly be of use.

Performance – Mercedes have absolutely excelled in this beast. The V6 engine out about 268bhp and the 7G-Tronic of the E350 is absolutely mindblowing. In mode there is a slight lag in which is typically there all auto transmission cars but you shift to sports mode all breaks loose. You just to push the right paddle to and the left paddle to downshift. If you are in D6 and speed comes down to on downshifting the car will come to D2 and not D5, so you won’t have to go through… to reach 2nd gear. We just the gearbox and loved red-lining the

On pushing the car it effortlessly goes 200 kmph and just keeps on You can actually feel that the car is the road with huge This is attributed to the superb design of the car. Mercedes have spent a lot of time in the tunnel testing the aerodynamic of the vehicle and all their efforts paid off well. It will not be out of to mention that the E class is the aerodynamic standard production car in the We touched 230 and then decided to off, the car did not give any indication it was running out of punch.

Mercedes-Benz W212

Conclusion – The E-Class is one of the best cars to and even if it is chauffer driven it good comfort and is certainly off status and character. It is extremely as well and offers features as adaptive highbeam assist, assist and 6 airbags which are on the worlds most loved saloon. Excellent ride and are few other parameters on which it It is even supposed to be more efficient than its previous but again fuel consumption is a criteria for someone who buys a
